2 for 1: Playdate Cafe #44 & Mojo Monday #153

I combined 2 challenges this week... first I decided to use the Mojo Monday sketch:
And suddenly I decided to do the Play Date Cafe's "Colour Horribilus" Challenge this week, using the bizarre colour combo of hot pink/yellow/navy?!?:

And...since I just got a Cuttlebug this week, I had this little embossed stars template just waiting to be used.  So here is my not-so-typical challenge card for this week:

All supplies are CTMH: Stamp sets are Star Power and Star Struck; Cardstock is Outdoor Denim, Sunflower & Hollyhock; Ink is Outdoor Denim; Hollyhock Organdy ribbon.

I am a star; thank you for noticing! Actually, you're the star for making these colours seem like a very natural combination. Thank you so much for sharing this.

Great card for our challenge, I love how you've embossed the background too. I haven't seen that embossing folder, must get one! Thanks for playing along with us at the PDCC this week!

What a fab card - you'll be hooked with that cuttlebug - I just love mine!! These colours have really made this week's play date the biggest challenge yet I think and you made them 'shine' (sorry, couldn't resist that pun lol)! :)
